Dale Frances is an Australian artist, living in Chicago. She works extensively in ceramics, painting and print.

Her explorative and gallery work seeks to spark discourse around three main themes -
the hidden or concealed 
exploitation of the vulnerable
recycling/reuse/pollution

Dale produces a funky range of homeware/tableware which is inspired directly from discarded disposable packaging and containers, in addition to recycled clay tailings. She also teaches many of her techniques of mould making and slipcasting, along with decorative techniques in classes she runs from her beautiful warehouse studio in Chicago.
